Re: Cables for your Harbeths (general, not specific Harbeth models)
I think David makes a very important point here. Setting aside the argument of whether cables in general do or don't have a sonic signature, it is conceivable that the more reactive (or erratic) the speaker load presented to the amplifier the more the signature could, conceivably, be audible.

Hence, Harbeth speakers as a class have relatively modest load demands on the amp and I would expect then that the sonic signature of exotic cables (if any) would be much less apparent when a decent amp drives Harbeth speakers.
Perhaps you'd like to see for yourself a screen-cam video of how I simultaneously keep track of the acoustics and impedance?
